World Hypertension Day

The World Hypertension day is celebrated on May 17, 2019. The theme is Know Your Numbers with the aim to increase awareness of high blood pressure (BP) around the world and promote hypertension prevention, detection and control.

Cardiovascular diseases occur due to high blood pressure or hypertension. The pressure of the blood in the blood vessels is higher than normal which eventually leads to heart problems.
